In the first "This Week at Bungie" newsletter since the breakup with Activision, Franchise Director Luke Smith reaffirms the company's commitment to the Destiny series going forward. "We created the universe and we hold its future entirely in our hands. The vast majority of the team is hard at work envisioning future experiences, enemies, and ways to play the Guardian you've been building since 2014. We're going to keep doing that. " he writes
Next: In the short-term, we are continuing to build the content we've promised for the Annual Pass. We have learned a lot from Black Armory that we will apply to future releases, most notably that we would like the beginning experiences of content to be a better point of convergence for the player base. In Black Armory, we set the power requirement for the first forge too high, and that meant it wasn't a great chance to jump into some new content. We want to find the line between new content that many players can play, and aspirational content for players to progress toward. We're exploring improvements to players in upcoming seasons for catch-up mechanics.
Other contents of the newsletter include:
- upcoming changes to Super abilities to "buff underutilized weapon archetypes, adjust hot button weapons in PvP and avoid PvP adjustments that will negatively affect PvE efficacy"
- QoL changes coming to the black armory based on player feedback
- a reorganization of the current forum structure to improve the overall experience
- a report from the QA team about bug fixes and resolved issues
